Daily Chess Puzzle: cuttings

June 12, 2018

Over the years – no, over the decades- I have cut and and kept numerous cuttings to ‘read later’. And they pile up, and up, and up.

I have decided the clutter is too much, and will, on an occasional basis when I have time, take a bundle, flick through them, discarding what is no longer of interest, and enjoy the rest, blogging some of them. Here is one of them

White to play

Skoberne v Sebenik, Bled, 1/7/16


Straight out of the London System, Black’s last move Bf8-d6 was a mistake, allowing 1 Ba6! and White wins a pawn. For instance, 1…Rb8 2 Bb7.

In the game, Black captured on a6, and played on a pawn down, and with his king exposed. 1-0, 25 moves.
